Vaux-Le-Vicomte

Yesterday‘s past is Today‘s present which is Tomorrow‘s future. A historical monument stands strong through the test of time to let us see today our grand history & heritage. Isn’t it a beautiful gift to rejoice & to pass it on to our future generations?” – Author

What’s your summertime favorite? When in France, getting sun-tanned on the beaches of South of France is on everyone’s mind. How about a French baroque-style candlelit evening instead? The estate of Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte hosts soirées aux chandelles (candlelit evenings) during the summer transforming the place into a fairytale of baroque times. What a memorable summer souvenir you say!

Situated 50 Kms SouthEast of Paris in MaincyVaux-le-Vicomte is more than just a visit. You would not only see the genius art of French landscape-gardener André Le Nôtre, but also the hidden surprises in the estate – a stroll in the estate with different perspectives, a walk through history in the castle, climbing up the castle tower for a breathtaking view, dinner at Les Charmilles, relax in the gardens with a glass of champagne & macarons enjoying the baroque music or even better embark upon an adventure exploring the underground river Styx. And most interesting of all, a summer evening in the candlelit Vaux-le-Vicomte.

Don’t believe me? Have a look !
